Solar street lights are raised light sources which are powered by photovoltaic panels generally mounted on the lighting structure. The photovoltaic panels charge a rechargeable battery, which powers a fluorescent or LED lamp during the night.
Solar street lights are independent of the utility grid. Hence, the operation costs are minimized.
Solar street lights require much less maintenance compared to conventional street lights.
Since external wires are eliminated, risk of accidents is minimized.
This is a non polluting source of electricity
